Odegaard is attracting interest from the Championship

The Norwegian youngster was thrown into the limelight last year after some impressive performances for the Norway national team, as well as for his club, Stromsgodset, also based in Norway.

After travelling Europe and going on trial at various clubs across the continent, the 16-year-old chose to sign for Real Madrid in January for £2.3 million, snubbing the likes of Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United.

However, the attacking midfielder has since grown frustrated with his lack of game time for the Real first team, his one appearance coming in the Champions League, where he replaced Cristiano Ronaldo from the bench.

He’s spent most of his career in Spain playing for Real Madrid Castilla, the club’s B team, but is unhappy about the quality of the opposition he’s up against in the Spanish third tier, and the lack of coverage the league gets.

Odegaard’s also watched the progress of some youngsters in England, such as Dele Alli and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, both playing for their club’s first team, and wants a loan move away for Real Madrid.

This has alerted a flurry of unnamed Championship clubs, who will face competition from La Liga sides Getafe and Rayo Vallenco to take him on loan, a move Odegaard wants to happen in January.

Championship fans… What do you make of this news? Would you like to take Odegaard on loan? Is your club short in attacking midfield? How would it feel for your club to be part of Odegaard’s career, which is looking bright? Let us know in the comments below!
